Goldenchyld | The Interview

State your stage name and profession for the record.

Goldenchyld – DJ / Producer

How long have you been DJing? Do you remember your first DJ gig?

I’ve been DJing for about 20 years now. Damn, that makes me feel old as f***. I don’t think I can remember my first gig ever, but I started doing house parties, cotillions, and school dances in like the 8th Grade and my freshmen year in High School.

What’s your favorite DJ era in the Bay Area and why?

Well, I remember the late 90’s early 2000’s being super exciting in the Bay Area. It felt like the Bay had world class DJs and high level events highlighting DJ culture super frequently. It felt like the Bay Area was an epicenter for DJ culture. All aspects of djing from digging, selection, to technical ability were all held in a very high respect by the whole community. I guess being exposed to that so early on left a huge impression on me, and I find myself wishing it could go back to that at times.

You’re on stage in front of all your heroes and you gotta rock a 5 minute all vinyl set to prove your worthiness. What records do you choose?

Sheez. That’s a heavy question. I might get into some Shakiyla – Poor Righteous Teachers, maybe some Wind Parade – Donald Byrd to Black Moon – Buck ‘Em Down, and maybe some RJD2 – 1976, and Sure Shot – Beastie Boys. At least I’d definitely work those in!

Rumor has it that something highly noteworthy is in the pipeline for San Jose nightlife, something DJs and connoisseurs of quality music are sure to be excited about for years to come. Care to comment?

Yes! San Jose has a great community of musical creatives, and we seem to have lost a ton of our music / nightlife venues due to city constraints over the years. That is turning around now slowly and we have more and more people of our generation going into business and creating the spaces we need for DJ culture to survive. I’m happy to say I’m involved with one of those projects with some very great and capable people and we are looking to open in late September / October of this year.
